April 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
This month Reel to Real brings you a selection of short films exploring the local, through landscapes and environments close to Dumfries from the eyes of artist-filmmakers. The selection of films will be presented in collaboration with the filmmakers behind each project, with opportunity to hear from them about the works after the screening.
Please note this month’s film screening takes place on Thursday, and not the normal Friday slot.
The Stove café will be open from 5.30pm serving pre-film dinner, traybakes and drinks.

The DG Youth Arts Showcase shines a light on some of our young emerging artists.
DGU commissioned The Articulate Cultural Trust to develop a Youth Arts Framework for Dumfries and Galloway, to better understand current provision and to seek recommendations to help make youth arts in the region the best that it can be.
As a result of this, DGU appointed two Youth Arts Advocates, Catriona McGhie and Lauren McDougall to help develop the Youth Arts Strategy Framework and establish an accompanying identity of DGU, catered and directed towards young creative practitioners in Dumfries and Galloway, DGyoUth.
